I live in a mid-sized city with several Catholic Churches. After accessing all of their websites, I am sad to say that none of them offer Exposition and Benediction on any kind of regular basis. I have to wonder why this is, as it would seem to me something that would be very beneficial to most Catholics.
Most churches have a pastor and a parochial vicar and sometimes even 3 priests mentioned...so why don't they take the time to offer this?:(
what are the regulations published by your bishop? quite likely they include a provision that enough members of the faithful be present to insure our Lord is not left alone, that the rite have meaning, that it not become just something the priests are doing to please themselves, not for the benefit of the faithful. Sounds like there needs to be some education in this diocese for the faithful so they will start asking for this, so the bishop can be assured they will take advantage of it. You sound like the perfect person to start this movement. Good luck. The movement to restore this practice in our former diocese began with the faithful, has spread to over half the parishes of the diocese, and the transformation is nothing short of miraculous in all areas: conformity to rubrics in liturgy, reform of catechesis, growth of vocations, growth in social service outreach, and boom in evangelization.
